More and more crypto-currency companies have entered the lending market over the past few months than ever before. This change was mostly due to the realization that the cryptocurrency industry needed a confidence boost for users.
Blockchain.com was the latest digital asset organization to leap into the crypto lending business. The Borrow feature allows users to borrow USD Digital whenever they wish.
Users will have to provide the Bitcoin holding in their wallets, as collateral, according to the company. Currently, Blockchain.com loans are not available for users in Canada, the United States, and the United Kingdom. To avail of the latest feature, one would require for their gold to be verified on the Blockchain.com wallet.
The release from Blockchain.com claimed that the interest rate from the loan will be given in the loan creation form. These interest rates were also subject to change depending upon the financial climate. Bitcoin was chosen as the asset to be set as collateral because of its worldwide appeal and popularity. Officials close to the inner workings opined that there were chances more cryptocurrencies would be accepted as collateral in the future.
One of the biggest highlights of the Borrow feature was that it did not require users to have a credit score. Credit scores have been always been seen as a pariah by a lot of people who want to borrow capital. Taking out any sort of loan will not affect a user’s credit score, a caveat appreciated by a lot of people.
To use ‘Borrow’, members would need to input the amount of USD Digital they want to borrow [the maximum amount is judged based on the available BTC balance in the wallet]. Blockchian.com has proposed a ‘no-limit’ on the term length of the borrow but with a warning. If a user’s loan is closed before the 30-day period then a month’s interest would be deducted from the collateral.
